The sail loft's founder was more or less my age when she opened for business back in the 70s. Post cards and other momentos plaster every wall as a testament to decades of happy customers. The post card above is postmarked just a few days before I was born in 1983. I looked because it said "Key West" and I wondered if it, by chance, was from someone I met when I lived there between 2009 and 2013. It wasn't, as far as I could tell. The photo below is of the loft's founder at age 25. This is the first business I've worked for in which my boss is a woman, is the owner, operator and founder, and has more than 30 successful years under her belt. Kinda neat. It makes me wonder what kind of beginning this may be for me.
